Yesterday I announced the newest members in the Western Conference, PROFESSOR_ROUSE from South Dakota. Today, the openings in the Eastern Conferenc of the Americas Region and the opening in the European Region are filled. A former league members, ND2130SRK from Virginia, is taking the place of departing members CCINOONE from New York. Some may remember ND2130's Sagat (different screen name, same player) from being one of the Final Four members in Super Brawl I. He ended up losing to Skrface13 (now Xenon5100) in the semi-finals. ND21030srk's two fighters are Chun Li and Makoto.
EDIT - Correction made to ND's fighter in Super Brawl. I originally wrote it was his main fighter, Chun Li, but it was actually his secondary fighter, Sagat.
THE_EPIYON from Belgium joins the European Region to take the place of Bl1nk-_. His two fighters are Vega and Balrog. This is his first time in the SFCCL. With him the third season of the SFCCL, the European Region will now cover 7 countries. Please welcome them to the SFCCL by beating them down in a nice little league match. If you can...
Good luck and welcome to the SFCCL!
Next week brings us our first live event of season 3, WAR GAMES. I will be hosting the WAR GAMES on Friday, August 19th, 2011, at 11:00 PM Central Time (12 AM Eastern Time / 9 PM Pacific Time).
For those members not with us last season, the WAR GAMES takes advantage of the popular Endless Battle function online. Basically, all participating members join one Endless Battle lobby and battle it out. The first member to reach 7 wins takes first place. Also, as a result of earning 1st Place, the winner must then leave the lobby as to not to interfere with the rest of the event. The second member to reach 7 wins takes second place. Unlike last year, no Prize Matches will be awarded. Since we have this new schedule format this season, winning 1st or 2nd place will earn you additional "Wins" to your fighters records. The first player to win 7 matches in the final lobby will earn each of his fighters an extra "Win" in the division standings. The second player to win 7 matches in the final lobby will earn one extra "Win" for only one of their fighters (their choice) in the division standings.
If more than 8 members participate in the WAR GAMES, multiple lobbies will be necessary to eliminate the extra members. No matter the number, the lobbies will be split evenly and random members assigned to each lobby. The first 8 members in either lobby to win 5 matches will then move on to the final WAR GAMES Endless Battle lobby. From there, the above rules will apply.
All SFCCL members (including European members) are invited to play, but the event is restricted to league members only. No friends allowed. Also, if you have difficulty joining the lobbies (keep getting kicked out or dropping), then you are out of luck. The majority of us can join a lobby easily, but there are some that always have problems from my experience. Sorry, but your connection is keeping you from playing. Just be online at the time of the event, and I will contact you as to where to go. Prior to the event, we will assemble in the PS Home SFCCL Clubhouse. From there, we will all join the Endless Battle lobby to begin playing. Hopefully, we start on time, but I've said that in the past. Don't blame me! Straglers always makes us start late.
Good luck! Hope to have a strong turnout.
